COFE201DVD: Precis of Post-Petroleum Energetics Including Seawater Agriculture
By Dennis M. Bushnell
This presentation surveys the Post Petroleum Energetics Landscape - sources, storage and conservation. Sources include biologics, PV, [Solar] Hydrogen, Advanced/"Ubiquitous" Geothermal and various classes of "nuclear". Biologics are particularly interesting for the shorter term with "Seawater Agriculture/Irrigation" utilizing Halophytes grown on "Wastelands" obviating the usual Biofuel/Bioenergy constraints of arable land and fresh water shortages. Scalable bioreactors minimize transportation economic burdens and enhance overall energy efficiency. Conservation approaches with major leverage include Thermal Diodes, CNT Computing, CNT-Enabled weight reductions and the emerging "Tele-Everything" mantras. Nanotechnology is increasingly important and enabling across the entire future energetic spectrum.

COFE202 DVD: Advances in Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) for Fusion Power & Space Propulsion.
By George Miley, PhD
The Dense plasma focus (DPF) represents one of the oldest proposed approaches to fusion power. It offer very important advantages of simplicity and a highly non-equilibrium plasma which is advantageous for burning neutron-lean fuels. The DPF has found important near-term applications in plasma processing but research on power production has lagged due to instabilities encountered at higher discharge currents in the standard approach. This presentation will discuss new, recent advances that offer significant improvements in performance.
The application to space propulsion will be discussed as one of the ways to capitalize on the ability to directly extract energetic flowing plasma from the DPF.

COFE203DVD: Nanosecond Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (nPEMF) Technology & Electro Molecular Medicine By Glen Gordon, M.D.
After millennia of use and nearly a century of investigation the parameters of efficacy for devices alleged
to restore tissue following trauma are quickly evolving. With that arrival we will see drugs and surgery replaced in classes of applications involving inflammation, trauma, illness and aging. EB Wilson noted, “the key to every biological problem must finally be sought in the cell”. A physicist or physical chemist might have said “in the electron”, and thus electrochemistry and electro-genomics as successors to molecular physiology. The juxtaposition of unparalleled safety and increased efficacy over drugs warrants
an informed professional and consumer activism to see this technology assume its correct position as central to future healthcare. If “primum non nocere” has meaning, the universal force of electromagnetism is the place to begin.
Glen Gordon MD, A graduate of Creighton University, served in the USN during the Vietnam conflict and followed that with an Assistant Department Head position at NIH. Entering private practice in Sports Medicine, he began investigating soft tissue injuries in humans using nanosecond pulsed field (nPEMF) technology in 1980. Working 20 years with Donald Haueisen PhD, they were awarded the first patent on nanosecond PEMF technology and plan to bring the technology to American families at affordable prices. Bolstered by the recent NASA study that found dB/dt critical to efficacy he speaks widely on the electro-genomic and electrochemical efficacy of this technology.

COFE208DVD: Progress in Quantum Vacuum Engineering: Nanotechnology and Propulsion
By Fabrizio Pinto, PhD.
Recent progress in the area of quantum vacuum engineering will be discussed. Quantum vacuum engineering describes the manipulation of dispersion forces, such as the van derWaals and the Casimir forces, in order to achieve a specific technological goal. Since dispersion forces dominate the interaction between neutral, polarizable particles on the nano-scale, engineering the quantum vacuum will allow for an unprecedented degree of control over nanostructures that would not be feasible with more traditional approaches. We will explore the technology revolution that will be enabled by the tight integration of intelligent semiconductor nano-devices capable of both computation and quantum vacuum based actuation in the near future. We shall also explore some intriguing effects of the curvature of space-time on dispersion forces. As we shall see, the presence of a gravitational field causes changes in the effective weight of atoms interacting via the van derWaals force, which represents the foundation for a propellant less propulsion system based on quantum vacuum engineering.
Dr Fabrizio Pinto obtained his Laureate in Physics cum laude at the University of Rome, La Sapienza, in
1984 with a thesis on globular star cluster formation. He moved to the United States in 1986 and obtained his Ph.

COFE209 DVD: Bio Advances with Electromagnetic Fields.
By Tania Slawecki, PhD.
Following up on H. T. Odum’s pioneering “energy” work, we have been assessing the viability of future energy technologies and fuel options through full-cost energetic evaluation. We will present our tentative findings and recommendations. This evaluation framework will be useful to apply to other promising energy technologies. As the human body is increasingly understood in bioelectromagnetic and quantum physical contexts, electromagnetic (EM) devices may prove more effective at treating certain health disorders than biochemical approaches. Therapeutic EM devices have proliferated on the open market to “enhance wellness” while in the medical community they are primarily employed as diagnostic tools. We are developing a taxonomy of EM devices to better comprehend their origins and interrelationships. Since placebo responses cloud studies of efficacy in treating health conditions, we are characterizing in detail the radiation and fields associated with these devices and their effect on physical matter, including especially water. From the scientific literature, we can clarify what fields are considered beneficial, what fields may be harmful, and where further research is required.

COFE210DVD: Experiments with Spiral Magnetic Motors
By Dr. Ted Loder
The magnetic Wankel motor, more generally termed the spiral magnetic motor, was originally developed by Kure Tekko Co. in the 1970’s and described in Popular Science (June, 1979). It used a magnetic gradient force to create rotation. A recent patent for this motor type was issued to P. Sprain in 2005. Our recent work will describe an experimental spiral motor with the goal of creating a self-running motor by using a combination of a magneto resistive rod (MR) with a piezoelectric (PZT) actuator and Wiegand wire to generate voltage pulses large enough to overcome the initial resetting (regauging) of the rotor magnets during each rotation.
Dr Ted Loder retired in May 2005 after a long and productive career as a Professor at the University Of New Hampshire, Department of Earth Sciences and member of the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space. He has conducted environmental research in numerous countries, and published extensively.
